Continued Care’s director Samantha Harrison shared her views on best practice in the care sector when she attended a policy-focused event in London on March 19th.
Samantha was attending a gala reception celebrating the 2019 launch of The Parliamentary Review, an independent series of sector-specific publications that bring together insights, ideas, best practice and concerns from people working in a range of industries, alongside perspectives from politicians and industry leaders. It allows private and public sector organisations to share and promote their best practice within policy sectors, with the goal of raising standards.
Continued Care, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last year and was rated Outstanding in a recent report by the CQC, was one of seven homecare providers from across the UK to be featured in the edition about domiciliary care. In the article, Samantha discusses both the challenges for people working in the care sector and how fulfilling this role is.
The gala evening was held at the beautiful Civil Engineering Building on St George Street to thank all the publication’s contributors, and hear speeches from high profile people in the world of politics and the media.
Samantha said: “The gala evening was a great night, and the speakers were very inspiring. The Parliamentary Review brings together people from lots of sectors who are all leaders in their own fields. It really was an honour and a privilege to be involved and have the chance to give our views on what it’s like to work in care and to discuss how we think the sector can adapt and change to enable homecare providers like us to deliver the highest standards of care possible.”
